Understanding the Fat Smash vrs. Extreme Fat Smash Diet

Maybe some members here are familiar with the Fat Smash plan. I quit waiting for my library to find the book and went to buy it at Barnes and Noble. Ended up with Fat Smash (with its four Phases ) and, by the same author, Extreme Fat Smash (which had three cycles.) I thought someone familiar with Fat Smash could help me understand how they relate to one another? What is the difference between the two plans?Thanks

I've done the Extreme Fat smash and that one if for folks that don't have as much to lose or have hit a plateau. You have a little more leeway with your food choices (but not much) and the exercise is much more intense than that of which is required for the Fat Smash diet. However, there is a team on PT that is specifically for this Fat Smash diet and some members follow EFS so they may be able to answer more questions than I can. Just go to teams and look for fat smash and join them. They have a lot of recipes, helpful FAQ's, etc that may assist you.

I have a question also. I was considering trying the fat smash diet, but read a bunch of negative reviews online, and not so many good ones. It made me rather leery. So in real life does this diet work?

Fat Smasher Talks

I started Fat Smash in June - Dropped 35 lbs by October1st and have kept it off to date. I'm in the group you mentioned - Check us out - Fat Smashers Unite.

Fat Smash is the brainchild of Dr. Ian Smith of Celebrity Fit Club fame and also check out for more Dr. Ian insight and tips. The link at the bottom is the article here on PT that describes Phase 1 of the original Fat Smash.

I have tried EFS but went back to FS because it's very regimented and my schedule doesn't allow me to follow it that closely. The original is controlled by you - EFS plans your meals and your exercise for you. Agree with 5:03 - good plan for plateaus or minimal losses. In fact, I probably need to switch to that to get past the hump I'm on and drop these last 12 lbs.

If you can't find the books in the store - try Amazon or a similar online site. They are cheap enough to buy both and they have great info in them.

This is the first plan that I have done that I feel like I can eat what I want, when I want without counting calories and points or measuring all the time.

There will always be people to say negative things and people that it won't work for but with hard work and dedication, you can meet your goals. I can't say enough good about this plan. I've never been as successful as I have with this one.

Check it out! : )

Kisha, along with client services director Lisa Leone and production manager Cathi Christopher Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , were confined to a 10-by-10-foot room backstage at the Auditorium Theatre, working with two heat-press machines and thousands of names on clear film in folders
  • Dallas Cowboys Jersey
  • , organized by team.

    "Even though we pretty much knew who was going to go in the first round, we still made all the names
  • Detroit Lions Jersey
  • , just to be sure, because there always seems to be some anomaly every year," Kisha said.The trio typically make two jerseys for each player: One to hold on stage and another that's destined to be cut into pieces for trading cards
  • Houston Texans Jersey
  • .They bring six jerseys for every team — all with the No. 1
  • Oakland Raiders Jersey
  • on the back — to account for a team having an unlikely three first-round picks.

    Until 2014, they brought only four jerseys per team but in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings traded up and had three first-round draft picks, which meant six jerseys. When the Vikings made their move
  • Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey
  • , Stahls' grabbed an extra jersey from a mannequin in New York City's Radio City Music Hall, where the draft was held.The group gets early word of draft picks from an NFL representative as soon as the pick is submitted by the team
  • Miami Dolphins Jersey
  • . Then the two-minute drill begins: Leone grabs the correct name from a box — this year the box contained 1,600 names
  • Minnesota Vikings Jersey
  • and team possibilities — and hands it off to be pressed by Kisha and Christopher, in a play they've run repeatedly.

    Names are only prepared for first-round prospects who have confirmed they will attend the event
  • New Orleans Saints Jersey
  • . Thursday night, 25 athletes attended.Stahls' gets the list of confirmed attendees about two weeks in advance.Each team has its own unique font NFL , which means 32 versions of every name.The company spends at least six weeks preparing for the event.

    Despite the pressure
  • New York Giants Jersey
  • , the company considered Thursday just another day on the job. Friday, the Stahls' team was on-site at the NFL Shop in Draft Town as part of a larger team that produces on-demand personalized apparel for fans
  • New York Jets Jersey
  • ."This year went really great," Kisha said. "You're always nervous though, you know? You've still got butterflies. And (you're) happy when it's done."
